Motherland is described as an epic military fantasy set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country. [source]

"Jimmy Fallon's 'Lip Sync Battle' Gets Spike Series Order"
"'Carpool Karaoke' Series Coming Exclusively to Apple Music"
"TBS Orders James Corden 'Late Late Show' Bit 'Drop the Mic' to Series"

Series spin-offs of recurring late night talk show segments are the new film spin-offs for recurring Saturday Night Live characters.

I suppose America's Got Talent is Stupid Human Tricks, and Billy on the Street is Jaywalking.

Mean Tweets: The Series?

I thought "To Tell the Truth with food" was Food Network scraping the bottom of the barrel, and then I saw an ad for Food Network Star Kids.

How many kids versions of Food Network shows is that now?

Chopped Junior, Cupcake Wars Kids, Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Kids Baking Championship, Kids BBQ Championship

The Food Network playbook:
• Rip off an existing show
• Themed episodes
• Tournaments
• Kids version

Fish Delight

If no black people could be on the USA men's basketball team, would it medal?

My "below zero" film synopses starting five:

Live-Thog: Suicide Squad

Not feeling Marvel Studios' new logo.

I have Samuel L. Jackson fatigue.

Louisiana exists in the DC universe, but New York City does not.

Hotel Cortez.

Easy on the music cues, Ayer.

How much steak did Viola Davis have to spit out?

Free association: Driving down Yonge Street = Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Yonge Street geography is wonky. Joker drives past the Hard Rock Cafe twice.

Is that Kyle Bornheimer?

Who is this playing the casino boss? Is he a rapper?

Joel Kinnaman eating a drumstick in the dark.

Waller knew that June released Enchantress by opening an idol, yet kept a similar idol on a shelf in her home, unguarded.

Will Smith's dialogue makes you appreciate George Lucas' writing.

"Without Me"! To Meyers Leonard's delight.

Title drop!

Yonge-Dundas is both Gotham City and Midway City.

The Native American dies first – twist!

I'm confused. Waller sent them on a mission to rescue her?! Never mind the SWIRLING SKY PORTAL nearby…

Aaaand rain arrives, because of course.

"Not me, shorty."

Killer Croc is Will Smith's dialogue incarnate.

A suicide squad of shitty Marvel film villains: Ultron, Ronan, Electro, Malekith, Whiplash…

Killer Croc wants BET.

Killer Croc watching BET Uncut.

Jared Leto was second-billed for seven minutes of screen time.

That was Adebisi as Killer Croc?

Not Kyle Bornheimer — Hopper on Stranger Things.

Each Twenty One Pilots single is more irritating than the last.

Random stars.

A Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead-type film that follows Joker during the events of Suicide Squad.

    "Killing a man instantly robs him of explanation. He has no time to process his final moments. Now, even though he was paralyzed, his mind was still able to understand why his life was ending. We let him die with answers. Otherwise, we're nothing but ruthless murderers." (Mr. Robot, S02E04)
  • Josh Groban Night (Mr. Robot, S02E04)
